Berkshire Athenaeum partners with the Oral History Center and Sheffield’s Voices from the Fields

Sheffield Land Trust oral history interviews with farmers are now getting digital copies as we prepare them for the Digital Commonwealth, where they will safely archived and available to the public.


Katherine Abbott is doing the work for us.  We are working in collaboration with the Sheffield Historical Society and the Local History Department at the Berkshire Athenaeum/Pittsfield Public Library. There, the precious tapes from the Land Trust are being stored and retrieved each time Katherine goes there to do her work.

Thanks to all for making this legacy collection safe and soon available to the public.
